TROY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WJW) — A celebration a century in the making, family and friends gathered at The Welshfield Inn Saturday for Charlotte Pochedly Jewell’s 100th birthday.

Born on a farm in Freedom Township in Portage County on Feb. 25 1923, Charlotte, who has outlived her multiple siblings, told FOX 8 that she really can believe she’s 100 years old.

“It’s been a long time my life, I’ve lived through a lot,” she said, admitting she never thought she’d live to be this old.

“I’m not really entitled to it,” she said.
